Lower Rochester, January 24, 2015

Commentary and photos by Astrid T.
Emily led a group of 14 hikers to Lower Rochester on a foggy and damp Saturday morning.  Mild temperatures made it feel more like spring and a lot of us snowshoed without coats.  Close to lunchtime the fog gave way to some sunny breaks, but when we got back to town the snow flurries were flying!  PHOTOS

Another VERY cold day in Elliot Lake!  Tempered by brilliant blue skies, eleven people snowshoed across Ryan Lake and beyond along the red trail returning to the golf course clubhouse after a relaxing lunch.  PHOTOS

Cold temperatures and a wind chill ended up being blue skies and warm sun for 5 hikers led by Donna as they made their way around the Sheriff Lake loop.  Lunch was enjoyed on the shore of the lake, most of the hike was sheltered from the wind. PHOTOS

Gayle led a leisure hike with 19 hikers on the gorgeous trails at Sheriff Creek. It was nice to hear and see some of the chickadees at the feeders on such a sunny day. The temperature was cool in the wind but a different day in the sun. PHOTOS
